Barry Gelston, M.Ed
Mr. Gelston will lead a workshop designed to encourage families to discuss creating a functional, psychologically safe workspace for their children to learn math. Strategies will be shared to empower both parents and their learners to navigate math successfully while feeling comfortable and secure.
Whether it be for exclusively homeschooling or after-school homework, we as parents have an opportunity to modify the learning environment to ensure that our children can have all of their unique needs met. In this workshop, Mr. Gelston will lead a discussion on several areas:
- What do we as parents need to do to make a psychologically safe learning environment for ourselves and our children?
- How can we make the physical environment comfortable and appropriate for learning? What are my child’s particular sensory and motor needs?
- What are assistive technologies and how can we use them for our children’s unique needs? Does my child need support with reading, writing, and or organization?
There will be an additional question asked in the GHF Forum for families to share tools and resources with each other and to continue the conversation for after the conference is over.
Presenter Barry Gelston, M.Ed. is the Board President of GHF, guiding its mission to empower every gifted family to make strategic, proactive, and intentional educational choices.
Currently, Mr. Gelston is a doctoral student at Bridges Graduate School of Cognitive Diversity in Education whose focus is on supporting gifted and 2e families. Barry holds an M.Ed. in math education from Cambridge College.
